Profile

Born in 1981. French nationality. Doctor of Interdisciplinary Informatics.

While working as a researcher at NTT InterCommunication Center [ICC], he built a media art video archive based on an open license (Creative Commons). He also founded Creative Commons Japan (now Commonsphere), an NPO to promote Creative Commons licenses in Japan, and became a board member.
In 2008, he founded Divideal Inc., a company that plans, develops, and operates information services, and has developed numerous web services and smartphone applications, which were selected as Apple Best of AppStore in 2015 and 2016. The company was merged into Smart News, Inc. in January 2018.
Since April 2017, he has been an Associate Professor at the School of Culture, Media, and Society, Waseda University, where he will be a professor from 2022. His research focuses on the relationship between technology, humans, and more-than-human beings from the perspective of digital well-being. He has led the interdisciplinary research group "Ferment Media Research" since 2019.

He was certified as a Super Creator in the Exploratory IT Human Resource Development Program of the Information-technology Promotion Agency, Japan (IPA) in 2008. He received the 2008 Good Design Award for his work promoting Creative Commons in Japan.

In recent years, he has served as the exhibition director of the "traNslatioNs - Understanding Misunderstanding" (2020/2021) at 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT, a jury member of the Good Design Award (2016-), and the creator of the "Nukabot", a fermentation robot that can communicate with humans and microorganisms. He has also created "Last Words / TypeTrace" (under the name of individual inc. with Takumi Endo), an art installation that collects the process of writing an unspecified number of imaginary wills, which has exhibited in Japan and abroad. 

He is the author of "Japanese Modern Literature as Commons" (East Press), "Words to Create the Future: To Connect the Unintelligible" (Shinchosha), "Making and Moving ALife: An Introduction to Artificial Life Model Theory through Implementation" (O'Reilly Japan, July 2018, co-author), "Riddle Floor: The Editing Technique Where Thoughts Ferment" (Shobunsha, July 2017, co-author), "Cyborgs' Religio: Create Minds in the Big Data Society" (NTT Publishing, 2015), "Bringing the Internet to Life: Prochronism in Thought and Practice" (Seidosha, 2013), "A Guidebook for Creating Free Culture: Circulation of Creation through Creative Commons (Filmart-sha, 2012).

  • The similarities in microbial and chemical patterns of fermentation in two open environments were promoted by using 150-year-oldNukadokoas starters.

    Kohei Ito, Kota Imai, Marin Yamaguchi, Dominique Chen, Young ah Seong, Kazuhiro Jo

       2023.11

     View Summary

    Nukadoko, a fermented rice bran employed in traditional Japanese pickling, uses lactic acid bacteria to ferment vegetables. Here, we report the microbiome and chemical data of a mixture of matured 150-year-oldnukadokoand commercially available rice bran placed in two open environments. Results: Across the two environments,Loigolactobacilluswas identified as the dominant microbial genera in the later stages of fermentation innukadoko. The period of increase in the relative abundance ofLoigolactobacilluscorrelated with a decrease in pH and ORP values. While the two environments showed a difference in the rate of change in microbial diversity, they shared the common process through whichLoigolactobacillusoutcompeted indigenous bacteria innukadoko, as indicated by the alpha and beta diversity index. Conclusion: Thus, the similarities in microbial and chemical data across two open environments during fermentation using starters indicate that starters contribute to the stability of fermentation in open environments.

  • Direct contact of fermented rice bran beds promotes food-to-hand transmission of lactic acid bacteria

    Ryo Niwa, Dominique Chen, Young ah Seong, Kazuhiro Jo, Kohei Ito

    FEMS Microbiology Letters    2023.11

     View Summary

    Abstract

    The skin microbiome, which varies widely between individuals, plays a crucial role in human health. It also interacts with the environment in various ways, including during the preparation of fermented food. Nukadoko is a pickle and traditional fermented food in Japan that utilizes lactic acid bacteria to ferment vegetables. When preparing or maintaining Nukadoko, it is mixed with bare hands. Despite the known interaction between Nukadoko and human skin, no studies have explored its impact on Nukadoko quality or skin microbiome changes. This study examines these effects during Nukadoko maintenance. Three participants were asked to stir commercially available late-stage Nukadoko for 14 days and not stir it for the remaining 14 days to examine microbial settlement and shedding. Microbiome analysis was performed on human skin and Nukadoko. We found that microorganisms from rice bran beds can temporarily settle on human skin but are shed quickly. Stirring rice bran beds by hand may have short-term effects on the skin microbiome. This study provides insights into the communication between human and food microbiomes in traditional Japanese fermented foods.

  • Analysis and Design of Social Presence in a Computer-Mediated Communication System

    Hiroki Kojima, Dominique Chen, Mizuki Oka, Takashi Ikegami

    FRONTIERS IN PSYCHOLOGY   12  2021.05

     View Summary

    Social presence, or the subjective experience of being present with another existing person, varies with the interaction medium. In general, social presence research has mainly focused on uni-directional aspects of each exchanged message, not on bidirectional interactions. Our primary purpose is to introduce such bidirectional evaluation by quantifying the degree of social presence with a few statistical measures. To this end, we developed a software called "TypeTrace" that records all keystrokes of online chat interactants and reenacts their typing actions and analyzed the results from different chat conditions, mainly focusing on the characterization of bi-directional interactions. We also compared the chat interaction patterns with the patterns from phone call datasets to investigate the difference of live communication in different media. The hypothesis of the experiment was that either richness or concurrency of communication is important for organizing social presence. Richness is defined by the variety of information at a time in communication and the concurrency is the number of temporal thread being processed at the same time. Our results show that when we merely increase the richness of information by presenting the typing process, the cognition of others' presence does not significantly increase. However, when the information concurrency is augmented by introducing the transmission of realtime text, we found that the transfer entropy between the interactants becomes considerably higher, and the social presence and emotional arousal, intimacy increased. High transfer entropy was also observed in the phone call dataset. This result shows that the mere augmentation of information richness does not necessarily lead to increased social presence, and concurrent communication is another critical factor for fostering vivid conversation in digital environments.

     View Summary

    We describe the design, implementation and on going evaluation processes of “NukaBot”, a system built to realize Human to Microbe Interaction, aimed to assist production of fermented food. Our system senses, records and analyzes in real time the fermentation process inside a “nukadoko”, a traditional method to produce vegetable pickles in Japan that involves a highly complex network of microbes. The flora of a nukadoko mainly consists of lactic acid bacteria, yeasts and gram-negative bacteria. The novelty of our system lies in providing an intuitive user interface that lets its user chat with a virtual persona attributed to the nukadoko. The NukaBot thus enables non-specialists to discern the complex dynamics of the microbial communities within a nukadoko in daily situations.

    Mizuki Oka, Dominique Chen, Ryuta Aoki, Takashi Ikegami

    The 2018 Conference on Artificial Life     103 - 104  2018.07  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    While technology has brought immeasurable benefits to humankind, recent advances in artificial intelligence and autonomous systems have also led to new ethical, legal, and social issues. We now face the problem of creating a cooperative society in which autonomous systems and people can coexist. The concept of artificial life provides unique perspectives, tools, and philosophies for furthering our understanding of complex living, lifelike, or hybrid systems. However, artificial life is still difficult to comprehend for those outside the academic community. We thus created a public co-creation community called ALIFE Lab, which aims to increase awareness of artificial life in collaboration with artificial life researchers and talents from creative fields such as design, art, and fashion. As one of the community activities, we organized a workshop-based program in which participants learned about Artificial Life and used it as a tool to conceive autonomous systems with concrete vocabulary and theory. This paper reports the methodology and outcomes of the workshop.

    Static text communications in online spaces lack the rich embodied information we experience in face-to-face communication. In this research, we aim at charging liveliness into digital text communication by developing TypeTrace, a Web software that can record and play back writing processes and visualize the micro fluctuations of time contained within. We show the design and result of a preliminary experiment we conducted, and discuss further research directions.

    Kudo Akira, Okada Takeshi, Chen Dominick

    Cognitive Studies   22 ( 4 ) 573 - 590  2015

     View Summary

    The purpose of this study is to investigate the writing style and revision process ofa contemporary fiction writer from a cognitive science perspective. We focus on the work of Mishima Prize winning author, Otaro Maijo. Using Type Trace, a text editor devised by Dividual Inc., as an analysis tool for observing the writing process, we con-sider features that have not been detected by creative experiment, protocol analysis or manuscript research. Based on observations of Maijo's writing process, firstly revisions are categorized as additions, deletions, substitutions, distributions, or consolidations. Secondly, revisions are further classified as "revisions at a generative point", "revisions in a generative sentence", "revisions in a generative paragraph", or "revisions beyond the generative paragraph", according to the remoteness of the revision from the point of composition. The results reveal that revisions such as the substitution of words and adjustments in sentence length were mostly performed together with text generation. All revisions that were made after an interlude took the form of revisions far removed from sentence generation. We find that Maijo's writing style tends to be maintained for several weeks to months and then changes substantially.

    Recently on the Internet, with such phenomena as Consumer Generated Media and mash-ups, various derivative creation services for a diverse range of modalities have appeared. However, even in the midst of massive growth of contents resulting from these derivative creations, individual service providers have not yet started to collaborate beyond corporate borders in order to attain multi-derivative creations. The authors implemented and evaluated the HIVE model that leads to multi-derivative creation through exploitation of digital rights licensing, from the viewpoint of Media Art Archives.

    Journal of Information Processing and Management   49 ( 10 ) 576 - 585  2007

     View Summary

    Since the first release of its licenses in 2002, Creative Commons (CC) increasingly expanded its activities, and today there are more than 1.4 billion contents under various CC licenses in over 50 languages worldwide. Over the recent years, methods of exploiting potentials of the licenses and the organizations of related agents have importantly diversified. Today, the initial public image of CC as being modeled "by and for the lawyers" in order to "promote free contents circulation" is dynamically evolving into a more real-world business compatible system. In this paper, we present an overview of the evolution of CC licenses so that to render a possible horizon of the movement, from the point of view of "business model" and "Web 2.0".

In this paper, we will describe basically how the open-content derived from the open-source movement, and how the Creative Commons is contributing to the spread of this free culture.

    In this exhibit, we focus on the microbes around us, in order to jointly consider future lifestyles in which microbes and human beings coexist and prosper.

    A massive amount of invisible microbes exist in our surroundings, including bacteria, fungi, viruses and protozoans. A diverse range of microbes inhabit our homes, our schools, and our own bodies as well, and they create their own unique ecosystems while maintaining a perfect balance.

    Discover essential information about microbes and the importance of microbes to people, and experience how microbes inhabit our living environments via a full-scale living space and living plants. This exhibit presents ideas for enhancing the diversity of microbes, and hints for lifestyles that make coexisting with microbes possible.

    Together, let us consider a vision for an ideal city where human beings coexist with microbes.

    YOLO:you only live once,你只能活一次 !



    在歷經3年疫情,超過1000多個充滿不確定,各種身體限制、空間限制、精神情緒頓挫的日子後,我們將慢慢迎接曙光。



    災難性疫情就像一道生命的坎,各層面的影響皆超出人們預期的想像,然而在疫情壓力下,生活的步調似乎緩慢並安靜了下來,由於生活上的各種規範限制及距離感,反而觸發了人們情緒的經驗,進而更有自覺地去感受那些曾被忙碌生活而忽略的各種美好,它似乎更深刻的提醒人們回視關於自身記憶、肉身體感、時間空間,以至生命消逝與存在的反思,促使我們更加珍視當下和思索生命,追尋未來更美好的生活。



    展覽 <您好,歡迎光臨 Hotel YOLO> 以旅館作為闡述展覽的載體,將空間分成3大區域規劃,接待大廳、小酒館及客房,邀請9位藝術家參展,透過作品分別帶出「相遇、時間與空間、存在與缺席、科技、生命及人生態度」等議題的討論,期待民眾透過遊走觀賞的體驗過程,慢慢看、慢慢想、慢慢認識、慢慢回憶,得以在旅途過程中找到回應自身的感動,喚起在這段或停滯或忙碌生活中,那被遺忘已久的身體感受,以及勇敢做自己的勇氣,YOLO!

     View Summary

    In the Future, How Shall We Live?

    In futures projected at different time scales: whether 10,000 years hence or one second from now, will we remain who we are? Are we represented by corporeal memories constructed in physical space, or by our digital behaviors captured in the block chain? Are standards of “living” determined through the consciousness of the organism itself, or by the levels indicated in mechanical data. Are that which human beings consider to be social systems, actually just a world inside a petri dish cultivated by another species? This ostensibly boundless and unfettered topic of “the future” is mired in foreshadowing in every direction, dragging or leading us in progression or retreat.

    In the face of an uncertain global future, LIVES - the 5th anniversary exhibition of the Jut Art Museum, attempts to re-contemplate and interrogate the most fundamental yet radical issues of “life,” “survival,” and “living.”



    The theme and structure of the LIVES exhibition originated from a series of regular research meetings held by the museum team from 2019. Crystalized after internal team discussion, the theme for the exhibition LIVES amalgamates multiple interpretations of the plural form of the noun “life” and the verb “to live,” and invites curators Escher Tsai and Amy Cheng to co-curate the exhibition, with Ming-Tsung Lee, Kuang-Chi Hung, and Lu-Lin (Jerry) Cheng to serve as curatorial advisors; all participants in dialogs and discussions that lasted over a year. Our collective origin and path as we look toward the future is explored through interdisciplinary conversations and contemplation in a contemporaneity where technology and culture intersect.

    A total of 12 artists and teams from Germany, Canada, the United States, the United Kingdom, and Taiwan have been invited to participate in the current exhibition. Curators Escher Tsai and Amy Cheng focus on the possibilities of various lifeforms, on the philosophies and ethics of survival, as well as on technological development and modes of living. They explore the social construction and forms of survival from both cultural and biological perspectives, encompassing the relationships between human beings and nature, and between information and consciousness.

    The future may already be upon us. Over the course of the preparatory process for this exhibition, spanning the years from 2019 to 2022, COVID-19 has accelerated various rehearsals and drills for the future, compelling us to gaze intently at the vulnerability and resilience of life. We have long departed from previously established rules of survival and modes of living. Even so, we will make an attempt to invite each one of you currently experiencing the present moment, to cast away established conventions and join us as we embark on this speculative journey regarding the future; on this perpetual inquiry without an answer.

     View Summary

    21_21 DESIGN SIGHT holds the exhibition "traNslatioNs - Understanding Misunderstanding" from October 16, 2020. The exhibition director, Dominique Chen, is informatics researcher and has undertaken many interdisciplinary studies of art, design and expressive media internationally.

    The word "translation" conjures up the idea of conversion between one language and another, with assorted acts of communication involved in those process. Since ancient times past, translation has been part of daily life as people seek contact with other cultures, and try to understand them. A remarkable evolution has recently come about with translation software, now routine in deployed to enable us to connect each other, "whenever and wherever," beyond all linguistic boundaries. Modes of communication have changed so much that what was once in an unknown world is now familiar.

    However, communication using "translation" is not restricted to languages. There are translations where visual or auditory sensations, or bodily expressions, play the role of bridge to transmit and receive communication. The diverse interpretations, conversions and expressions that are generated by all these processes can be said to have much in common with art and design. This exhibition is based on Dominique Chen's idea that "translation is designing communication." We define translation as "the trial processes linking mutually non-comprehending parties from different backgrounds" and use this to explore the possibilities of translation from multiple perspectives.

    The venue includes experiential exhibits employing AI-based automatic translation and video work by creole speakers with multiple native languages. There are also instances finding translations by through the body expression, such as sign languages or gestures and communication between humans and other species, even with microorganisms. All the works enquire into the possibility of translation. We hope that through the notion of translation, this exhibition encourages visitors to realize the joy of finding emotions and cultures in "others," and of discovering a world beyond.

     View Summary

    Successively displayed on 24 methodically arranged monitors are "10-minute last words" collected via the Internet, while a keyboard on a table in the center of the exhibition automatically inputs the according text without human involvement.
    This work is based on the "TypeTrace" software that dividual.inc has been developing since 2006. The software can be used for recording and reproducing entire text input processes via a keyboard, including the timing of typing or erasing letters. The sizes of letters vary depending on the time intervals between the input of single words.
    Different from the uniformly sized letters one usually encounters in books or on displays, here the writing person's mindset, with aspects of momentum and hesitation, is vividly reflected in the resulting text. Just like authors' handwritten drafts exhibited at museums for example, or correction marks added in the proofreading process provide information in addition to that of the respective text itself, this work makes the viewer aware of the existence of the writing subjects behind the texts.
    The experience of writing one's last words is at once also an opportunity to rearrange one's thoughts toward loved ones, and about one's own past and future. New entries are still frequently uploaded to the special website that was set up in order to collect "10-minute last words" for this exhibition.

    It is said that birds are able to form flocks because they act in a 'critical area', where the movements of a single bird are linked in a chain and propagated to the whole group. In this study, we analyzed whether a similar critical phenomenon exists in internet communication systems. The analysis revealed the existence of a critical phenomenon in online communication, which is observed in a critical region with two states of different nature. It was also found that when a group is in a critical state, nodes emerge that behave like 'keystone' species in biological ecosystems. These mechanisms are thought to enhance the metabolism of the group, leading to the sustainability and adaptability of online communication.

     View Summary

    今年度は,昨年度中に開発を開始していた「創作のプロセスを追跡するソフトウェア」であるTypeTraceの実践展開と理論構築に務め,論文や論考の執筆および長期間の一般展示やソフトウェアの無償リリースにおけるユーザの動態観察を行った。デジタル・アーカイヴの標榜する地平の先には,創作の結果のみならず,創作のプロセスを記録し,再生可能な形で共有する必要性が生じる,という段階的発展に繋がったと考えている。
    TypeTraceはキーボードを叩いて文章を執筆する過程を,各キー入力の粒度で時間情報と共に記録し,動画のように文章の執筆過程を再生し,他者と共有することのできるソフトウェアである。文字メディアというものは,最もリテラシーの低いモダリティであるが,同時に参加障壁も最も低い形式である。展示やソフトウェア・リリースを通して多くのユーザの執筆プロセスの採取を行ってきたが,今後とも多くのユーザのフィードバックを得ることによって,多様な発展可能性があると考えられる。
    プロクロニズムとは生命システム論とサイバネティクスの分野を切り開いたグレゴリー・ベイトソンが「生命体の発生と成長の歴史を表現する形態」を指した用法であるが,筆者はこの語を情報ネットワーク時代におけるデジタル・コンテンツのアーカイヴの構築と共有を行う上で不可避の,重要な概念として再定義する作業を各種メディアや学会発表で行ってきた。今後とも,文字メディアに限らず,描画や作曲といったクロス・モーダルな表現形式のプロクロニズムを介して,アート・アーカイヴの可能性を追究していきたいと考えている。

  • 共話概念に基づくデジタルウェルビーイングに資するインタフェースの研究開発

    2020  

     View Summary

    コロナ禍でリモートワークが普及し、オンラインが主流なコミュニケーションの場になる中、デジタル環境を介した社会的存在感(Social Presence)や共在感覚の重要性が高まった。そこでは、主観性を対置するのではなく重ね合わせる共話の構造が注目される。今年度は昨年度に引き続き、TypeTraceを用いた実験に関する論文を精査しながら、その他でも教育や研究の現場において共話の構成要素である「あいづち」を擬似的に共有する実験装置を開発した。また、Ars Electronica 2020 Tokyo Gardenプログラム(2020年9月)にて、あいちトリエンナーレ2019に出展した作品『Last Words / TypeTrace』(dividual inc.)の国際版を展開した。そして、ウェルビーイング概念を個人ではなく間主観的に捉えるための国際的な議論の論文も刊行された。
